On Tuesday 28th November, Year 6 and a few children from another school watched a fun Science show. First we watched a science trick! The man had three cups and in one of them he poured in some water. We were told to choose which cup the water was in. When we chose though there was nothing in the cup!
What we didn’t know was that in the cup which water was poured into also contained sodium polypropylene which absorbs water and this is also found in nappies.
Most of the experiments involved liquid nitrogen which can get as cold a -128c. That’a around six times colder than your fridge! One of the experiments involved Neehira and myself as we helped the man put flowers into liquid nitrogen. As soon as we touched the petals, they shattered and fell onto the ground!
Another experiment was when Mobin helped the man put a banana in liquid nitrogen and after that he was able to use the banana as a hammer. Another experiment was when we used methylated spirits and an electric switch to make a tiny canister pop in the air!
Year 6 is very grateful to Mrs Parker for organising the event.
